Technician Jackie Rombeek lifts a beagle out to meet the public during a tour of the University of Guelph’s Central Animal Facility. Tours of the building, which houses everything from frogs and fish to rabbits and hounds, were part of the facility’s open house event Tuesday. For the past 20 years, the facility has opened its doors to the public to allow people to see the kind of research the animals are involved in, as well as how well the animals are treated. Beagles like this one are used mainly by the Ontario Veterinary College for such things as practice exams, and are usually adopted out after about two years.
